In 1946 Pablo Picasso visited the ceramic workshop Madoura in Vallauris where he attended a pottery class. Impressed by the quality of the resulting works, the artist decided to produce more ceramics in collaboration with Madoura. With his typical, simple, flowing lines the Spanish artist designed here a female portrait on a rectangular plate. Picasso experimented with ceramics and perfected his pottery skills for over 20 years. More than 600 different plates, bowls, vases and jugs in limited edition were created between 1947 and 1971. Today Picasso’s Madoura ceramics are highly sought after by collectors.

Condition:The plate is in overall good condition. It shows thin craquelure in the glaze on the underside. The dimensions are 39.5 x 32.2 cm.

Pablo Picasso (1881-1973)The Spanish painter, graphic artist and sculptor Pablo Picasso created a body of work of about 50,000 paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures and ceramics. He studied at the Royal Academy in Madrid and at the Art Academy in Barcelona, where his father taught. In 1901 Picasso had his first exhibition in a gallery in Paris, followed by numerous international exhibitions. The works from his Blue and Rose period and the establishing of cubism along with Georges Braque marked the beginning of his extraordinary artistic career. The painting Les Demoiselles d'Avignon (1907) is one of the best known works of Picasso. Like his monumental painting Guernica (1937) no other work has marked the art of the 20th century. In honor of Picasso’s works, two museums, the Museu Picasso in Barcelona and the Musée Picasso in Antibes, were established during his lifetime. Famous for the diversity of his expressions, Pablo Picasso is one of the outstanding artists of the 20th century.
